I remember seeing an office for a “Santa Ana Council for Arts and Culture” at the train station in Santa Ana over a decade ago. I don’t remember how long its been since that sign was taken down, and apparently, the entity went away with it. Nowadays there is talk amongst downtown artists about organizing, and I wondered, what happened to that council from years back? Can a potential new council model itself after the previous one? There are newer organizations in the downtown that are more visible and more active–I never see anything having to do with the old council–their mark is nowhere to be found. Did this organization have an official or semi-official municipal status?
